    Currently my set up is 9.2 sysNAND with 10.7 emuNAND coldbooting into rxTools, and my question is, is there a way to boot the Homebrew Launcher from emuNAND that doesn't use boot.3dsx since that is being used by rxTools. Thanks in advance!

    You have to hexedit the payload that the CIA downloads after you've launched it to point to some other 3dsx file. For example, rename the homebrew launcher's boot.3dsx to bhbl.3dsx, then hexedit the payload appropriately.

    I already have that installed on emuNAND but it loads boot.3dsx, where I have rxTools' boot.3dsx. I'm looking for a homebrew launcher that searches for something other than boot.3dsx... or maybe there's a way to change what Yellows8 HBL searches for?
    Edit: Do you know the where the offset is?

    I don't remember where the offset is, but if you open it up in notepad or something you'll see "boot.3dsx" spelled out in plaintext and you can change it to some other 4 character string.

    Alternatively, you could change the name of the rxTools 3dsx to brxt.3dsx or something like that and modify the menuhax payload instead. The menuhax payload has two locations that you'd need to change instead of one, however.
